I would agree with this. Good point!

Would you want Google on top of gathering all of your information from your phone, TV, android box, web searches, location and emails, also listen to all of your conversations at home freely with your permission?.

I would favour the Google home over this DIY setup. I am a tinkerer and love DIY projects and am into raspberry pi and Arduino IOT projects. But this looks too expensive for something inferior to a Google home setup.

I backed this when it was on KS, hoping to kick me into making some software for it. not used it past trying the included game. Shame as it's a nice piece of kit and is super portable too.

Not voted either way, but I've got big hands and watching that gif above there is no way I'd be able to play on that. It also doesn't look comfortable to hold, plus I'd like a bigger screen. I like the idea of it though.

I've been using a RP2 with Kodi for the past 5 months as primary use.
No complaints at all, and no overclocking used.
I tried different versions:
- Openelec
- Retropie + Kodi Plugin, with default boot to Kodi.

The second is my current setup just for the versatility of using the system as a retro-gaming console as in when required without having to swap micro-SD cards.

All in all I am extremely satisfied with Kodi running on Raspberry Pi 2.

You have to spend three times the cost of the board on buying adaptors.

You don't have to buy the adaptors, by your reasoning why did they even release the Zero. It's a cut down version of the standard Pi, buying all the adaptors to turn it into one defeats the object.

Hi. That's what I used.

Still having trouble streaming some files, especially to my XB1 using plex app.

Still messing about with it. I would like a plex option to turn off transcoding (as I think that is the primary issue I am having) but it aint possible ( i was serving files to all my devices without transcoding from my NAS share without issues, but love the plex system).

Thanks £10.50 for the pi and cables with delivery. Looks like they have just about sold out of all bundles now.

Whoop! Thanks OP. Mine is going into a MagicMirror

Most of these chips are ok on some pins with 5v.500mA seems a lot, not much good for battery use then.13.5mA at RX 2Mbps on the Nordic chip.The PAM2306 used on RP can supply 1A per channel so it's probably not enough if you are powering other stuff.You might have to supply power to the wifi card separately.


The 500ma is peak, like when the chip is booting. It's not the best for power use but it's wifi, the nordic chip isn't wifi.
You might get away with it on a Pi 2 but on the other Pis (including the zero) you don't want to draw over 150ma from the 3v3 pins.

The esp8266 is a great chip for embedded wifi projects, and it's so cheap! But you probably wouldn't use it with the RPi.

Just had a look at the spec sheet for this chip and it seems to use 215mA at max right down to 62mA.

Looks like a powerful chip and you can use the 32bit cpu as a separate cpu.

That link you gave, shows an image of the wifi module with a separate psu.
